I got three eggs that I'm incubating right now and want to candle them, I'm just not sure whether its ok to take them out for the short time it takes.
Can I take eggs out of the incubator to candle them?

Yes it is most certainly ok! Just make sure your hands are clean when handling them, and don't have them out for more than 15 minutes max. Remember, it's the internal temp of the eggs that counts. It takes a bit for the internal temp of the eggs to cool to the point of hurting the baby.
